What do you do when you are stuck in Texas and just starting to listen to this
new music called ''hardcore?'' If your the guys in D.R.I., you form a band,
practice ever night, annoy the hell out of your dad (the ''Mad Man''), and play
the fastest, most intense hardcore songs ever!
A year later, when your set is dialed in, you start playing shows. Then you
borrow money, go into a small studio that advertised a special in the local
newspaper, and you record your songs. Not having enough cash, you cram
22 songs (that are a total of 17 minutes and 38 seconds!) onto a single 7'',
press 1000 of them, and tell people to ''play at a Dirty Rotten level!'' Then
with your 7'' in hand, you head out to California to live in San Francisco in an
old brewery known as ''The Vats'' and the adventure just gets started!
Thus the band that would become a thrash/metal legend had put out their first
legendary and highly influential record. Not only would this be their first
release, but it would go down as being the fastest record ever made (at the
time) and would influence thousands of bands and people to this day. D.R.I.
single handedly changed what would be defined as ''hardcore'' and would go
down in history books for introducing their brand of hardcore, played at a
new, never before played speed!
Now, after being out-of-print for nearly 27 years, it is once again available in
the original format... all 22 songs on one piece of 7'' vinyl! Once again you
can hear the raw, fast music in its original mix and master, the way it was first
meant to be heard.
